13. Hell’s Roofdeck

(54th to 60th Streets, Tenth to Eleventh Avenues)

Because it’s a no-man’s-land no longer.


Despite being sequestered in the heretofore nameless netherland behind the Time Warner Center, the blocks north of Hell’s Kitchen have begun morphing into a luxury corridor of sorts, replete with rentals and condos in buildings gilded with all sorts of amenities. (It seems only right that Urbani Truffles, the Italian supplier of fancified funghi, chose to open their American flagship here.) Donald Trump’s march southward on Riverside Boulevard has been leapfrogged by Extell and its army of gleaming residential towers. Last December, the City Council approved the developer’s plans to build Riverside Center on eight acres hugging the waterfront, with five glassy high-rises stocked with market-rate and affordable housing, a movie theater, a school, a hotel, and nearly three acres of parkland.
